What is ecosophyT ?

ecosophyT is a blog committed to exploring issues pertaining to the environment through essays, photography, poetry and discussion. This blog also ponders environmental issues at Vanderbilt University.  Some on campus and beyond  seriously question the coal burning power plant adjacent to the Sarratt Student Center. The coal for this plant derives from coal  sites in eastern Kentucky.

The  idea for this blog is  from Vanderbilt University’s ECO Rolling Seminar sponsored by the Office of Active Citizenship and Service and co-sponsored by American Studies and SPEAR. In  Fall 2010 and 2011,    students, faculty and staff   traveled to Appalachia (eastern Kentucky) for three days to study mountain top removal (mtr) sites and reclamation areas. The 2011 group visited Robinson Forest, a research forest preserve of the University of Kentucky. The Forest is surrounded by mtr sites and is a rare and surviving testimony to bio diversity in the region.
